Offally good tucker.

bigfeet 20 August 2008 76

This thread and this one have awaken in me a hunger for more delicious offal.

Any recommendations as to which café or restaurant in Canberra serves a nice dish of devilled kidneys, crumbed brains, tripe and onions, stuffed hearts, pigs liver or any other offalicious dish?

Where can I get a good black pudding or haggis?  How about some giblets? What about tongue or some jellied trotters?

I know there are other offal lovers out there, come-on, share your secrets!

Placenta: mmmmmmm stem cells

Well, while you’re hear, ant, you will be interested to know that I found this fascinating offal link. It contains the most marvellous recipe for:

Placenta Paté

* 1 placenta
* 6 oz. red wine
* 3 garlic cloves, minced
* 2 shallots, chopped finely
* paté pastry
* Green onion
* Salt and pepper to taste
* 6 strips of bacon
* 1 egg

As luck would have it, I do happen to have a vintage 1999 placenta in my freezer – seriously!!

I am lacking ingredients for the deer penis soup, however ….

I actually have carrot in my mouth right now. Inappropriate for an offal thread, I know!

Vegetables? Disgusting. Off to the Offal Thread with you.

erm. um. We appear to be there.

What about the that Silence of the Lambs Fry sequel? You know where he drugged the guy, took off the top part of the skull, sliced a bit of brain off, fried it and then fed it back to the guy?

OK who has not just had a little vomit in their mouth just now?

I couldn’t find it (didn’t do a search though). Bad puns and lame jokes definitely deserve banishment here though. How CAN people eat this stuff? gaaah.

Granny Granny 9:36 pm 16 Sep 08

Yup! Offally lonely hereabouts … in these here ‘parts’!

I love sangria!

@61, @65:

Legends Spanish is well and truly worth it as long as you buy the right meal.

Get the Tripe, Kidney and Baby Octopus tapas, add a salad, lots of fresh crusty bread rolls to mop up the sauce and a carafe of sangria — heaven! A great meal out for two and not too expensive either.

@Legends – if you aren’t there for the all you can eat menu, then its not worth the visit.

I believe I have done a review on legends already

@Schlemmertopfh – I have an ikea version, I must say I’m not that impressed. Stop squirrelling around and go the Le Creuset at the Myer christmas sales. Something like 70% off (which brings it down to about $250 a pot) but you’ll be back to start your set the next year. I cannot begin to harp on about how my life has changed since I purchased my first Le Crueset.

but you bought an ikea schlemmertopfh.

I bought an authentic one, then received the ikea one as a present. chalk and cheese. no comparison.

I’m just not sure that chicken feet have good social comment, ant. A heart really says something, y’know?

Sending some chicken feet would be cheaper on postage, and you get lots of chicken feet in the tray pack, so you’d have plenty to mail.

pickled eggs – now that is a delicacy.

ox hearts can be stuffed with rice and other ingredients. also good for hate mail or a snack whilst stalking….

Granny Granny 2:50 pm 22 Aug 08

Hate mailing ox hearts is a damn fine idea! Noone we know, I hope….

; )

legends in manuka has a offal section on their menu. from memory there is black pudding and about 4 or 5 other things on there but i can’t recall what else. im sure you could give them a ring and find out.

Overheard – your bargepole comments made me laugh on a dull work day – cheers.

We used to do brains when I was a chef – poached in milk then cooled, crumbed and deep fried.

Served with lemon – I tried them once because I had to know what I was selling, but never again..

Its just a vile warme paste that tastes like nothing in particular – hence the lemon juice.

Save teh offal for pesants (sp?) and those who are deluded into thinking its food.

May go to mother natures though – I need another ox heart to hate mail someone.

Granny Granny 2:48 pm 22 Aug 08

You know that the more we resist the offal, the more likely we are to cross over.

ant ant 2:43 pm 22 Aug 08

And jokes like that will see you staying here!

Overheard Overheard 2:31 pm 22 Aug 08

Don’t be offal, Granny. It wasn’t a birdie; it was an insect!

Granny Granny 2:30 pm 22 Aug 08

Hi Overheard,

A little birdie told me you’d been banished to this thread!

*tee hee*
